Photoh Competition Photography Classes Brisbane Melbourne Adelaide Sydney Perth Australia

The competition this fortnight is all about Shutter Speed!

Shutter speed is one of the elements on the exposure triangle, and determines how long your camera records the scene in front of your lens. A fast shutter speed will freeze action, whilst a slower shutter speed will blur movement.

There are lots of ways to get creative with shutter speed, and once you've mastered using your manual settings or priority mode, you can have fun breaking the rules and getting experimental.

Try freezing something that is whizzing past your camera (birds can be a good challenge!) or having a go at panning shots. With long exposures you could photograph light trails from passing cars at night, or sparklers.
